More guerilla graffiti in the Holy Land: Israel’s apartheid barrier as a canvas

Indeed, Love–and art–Conquers (W)all — here’s some more creative culture-jamming that allows you to participate by sending a message to feature on the wall. All proceeds go to the Ramallah community.

Send.a.message–the website mentioned in the video–is HERE, check them out.


These two short video clips are around 2 and a half minutes each and are sourced from the BBC and Al Jazeera.

    I’m having myself another whole herd of cows over Israel bombing Gaza and shutting down the borders again today… and the coverage by the MSM is sickeningly paltry.

    I’ve HAD it! I’ve HAD it! I’ve HAD it! I’m towing those fuckers on a barge to the South Pole.

    Hello Ann, They’ve given me a jan 30th date too for my message and like they say it’s a good idea but hopefully the concrete medium upon which the graffiti resides will not be around for long at all. An artwork which will be deemed most successful if it is soon destroyed, a nice concept.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
